Silvia Pollicini triumphs in the Racconigi open race, the junior Matilde Bertolini Italian time trial champion
At Valcar – Travel & service house, the profettional women’s cycling team that we sponsor, the streak of successes continues thanks to the exploits of Silvia Pollicini and Matilde Bertolini.
It was the Tuscan junior who inaugurated this splendid weekend by giving the Orobic team a beautiful, convincing and hoped-for Italian title in a discipline of capital importance such as the time trial. Matilde’s race was amazing with an hourly average of a true champion: 43.46 Km / h.
This was the speed with which he covered the 21.1 km of the track with a time of 29’08 ”. A very low time with which the second classified Alice Palazzi (2 / a at 01’03 ”) and the third classified Francesca Barale (1’12 ”) trailed by more than a minute.
A triumph legitimized also the following day when Matilde Bertolini won the Racconigi time trial in the tricolor jersey, bringing the number of time trials won in 2020 to 4.
And also in Racconigi in Piedmont the second show of this weekend was staged. Winning the in-line race reserved for open women was a convincing Silvia Pollicini who in the short sprint released her quick cue and won her first race of the season with arms raised.
A success that amply repays the efforts of an athlete often at the service of her teammates and who this time has collected her own personal satisfaction.
In the meantime, the Giro Rosa has also begun where Valcar – Travel & Service certainly does not start with the favors of the prediction and whose goal will be to be seen, to appear well and take advantage of every opportunity for a possible stage victory.
This happened in the first stage, when the team made up of Marta Cavalli, Teniel Campbell, Vittoria Guazzini, Barbara Malcotti, Elena Pirrone and Ilaria Sanguineti won a valuable 10th place in the inaugural team time trial.
